    222 - On The Other Side With Vince Herman

    222 - On The Other Side With Vince Herman

    We are extremely excited to have Vince Herman as our guest on No Simple Road this week! Things are just more fun when Vince Herman is around, and since helping co-found Leftover Salmon over a quarter century ago, Leftover Salmon shows have always been the most fun. Herman moved to Boulder, CO from Morgantown, West Virginia, where he was attending West Virginia University, in 1985. On his first night in town, he met his future bandmate Drew Emmitt at a show for Emmitt’s group at the time, the Left Hand String Band. The two struck up an immediate friendship. For a short time after moving to Boulder, Herman joined The Left Hand String Band, marking the first time the two would play together in a band. Herman soon left The Left Hand String Band to pursue his own musical vision. He formed the Salmon Heads, a Cajun-jug band that tried to wrangle all of Herman’s disparate musical influences, Cajun, Calypso, Ska, and bluegrass into a coherent musical statement. His vision was fully realized on New Year’s Eve 1989 when the Salmon Heads and The Left Hand String Band united forces for a show.
    We catch up with Vince to talk about dealing with coming out the other side of quarantine, creating the New High Hawks album, what it means to be a psychedelic chef, finding others that share your passions, making a new solo album, why Charlie Daniels was a hippie, and so much more!

    SONG AT THE BEGINNING OF THE EPISODE: 'Talk About That' off The High Hawks self-titled album 'The High Hawks'
